CALIFORNIA’S NEW PRUNES.
|. jnie of Tfarlr Chnraetrrlslloo o'. De scribed by the lent Srnsiior Me Mil Inn. The recent seismic disturbance* in California gave the late Senator Mc- Millan an opportunity to tell a story about the boasting proclivities of the people of that state when referring to their fruit production, says a western exchange. The senator was fond of a good story or joke ansi told one with a great deal of humor and skill. While a party of friends wered .cussing the earthquake shocks in |ie golden gate state, the senator so id: “They are so enterprising out there. I’ve not the slightest doubt, for instance, but that they'll take a very practical advantage of these seismic disturbances. They'll probably put an earthquake prune on the market, as prunes are what they happen to be booming just now. It will appear. J suppose, as soon us ever they can print the labels. They will describe it, at any rate you may be sure, in the most modern style. They’ll say tiiat the skin- has been made tender by the sudden jar, that the juices have been wonderfully blended by the vigorous shake and that the atones have been loosened by the sudoon shock. When those prunes are stewed they ought to rumble like the ominous sound of an approaching earthquake, and when you put one into your mouth you ought to experi ence a quick, little electric thrill. As for their effect upon the barometer, if that is brought near any of them, it uill certainly full to the notch op posite which arc inscribed those dread ful words, ‘Sudden disaster.’" Thf Prliilrsf of Age. “I haven't known you very long,” said Mias Anne Teek, gushingly, “but I hope you won’t object to my calling you ‘firace.’ It doesn't seem too fa miliar, does it?” “Not at all." replied Miss Sharpe. “I rather expect elderly ladies to call me by my first name.” —PhiludelphKi Press. r" HOYER BROTHERS MERCHANT TAILORS.

Oral niK Ilrraklnii Plow Thv.-ui Deep DniorU In the Chicks •tan Coonlrjr. In the Indian territory, where all sorts of things are done that were I never heard of elsewhere, they are plowing asphalt, says the Kansas ( ity .Star of recent date. Eighteen miles southeast of Comanche, in the Chick asaw country, six strapping Mis souri mules are hitched to a big break ing plow every day and' long furrows of asphalt are turned. It is the same kind of a plow the farmers use who break ground in the black jack coun try, and the asphalt is the kind got by blasting on lbt> island of Trinidad. The mules are plowing in the eentenof a deposit one-third larger than the asphalt deposits on Trinidad, Wells have been dug to the depth of 100 feet. Strata of asphalt of varying thick nesses have been encountered 1 to what ever depth the wells have been sunk. The supply is apparently inexhausti ble. Men of means have become con vinced there are millions oi dollars to be made, and are either going to make it or lose a fortune in their experi ment. SKINNING A PEARL. A Delicate Operation for the Ile muval oi Stilus or I>leolrallona 'lllat Require* Skill. The lapidary was skinning a pearl, according to the Philadelphia Record, lie hud on gloves of m very delicate sort of kid, and' the glasses that he wore had lenses of such magnifying power that his eyes, through them, looked as big as saucers, “i wear gloves," he said, “because the bunds perspire freely in this work, and per spiration has often been known to dis color pearls. This stone was injured by the accidental dropping on it of some acid. The disaster discolored l it some, you see. With this very deli cate little tool I am removing its outer skin, and if I find that the acid has filtered through and discolored the inner skin also, I may remove that as well. A pearl, you see, is composed of concentric layers, or skins, and you can, if you are a clever worknian, peel it down and down until it disappears.” Similar fatalities. The Chicago Tribune recently pub lished a column of strange fatalities collected from its exchanges.

The sewing girl is out of the way of getting a h iislm rid. Stic floes not come in contact with men in her work, ns other girls do, and witli so little time for any tiling but her work she does not muke the acquaintance of marriage aide men. The very nature of her em ployment excludes men from her so ciety during her working hours. Her n -oeiales, and even her employers,are almost invariably of her own sex. No class of women are more deserving of good husbands than are the women who make their living with their needles. They are usually modest, re fined and domestic. They do not hunt husbands, and. being so withdrawn from tin- daily lives of men, husbands flo not usually hunt them because they do not usually knew of them.— Louis ville Courier Journal COLLAR PHILOSOPHY There are few subject* which should be discussed with anyth.ng but an impartial mind if it is desired to render a just opinion on their merits and demerit*, and the -übject of collars is assuredly no exception to this rule. At the name time it must he admitted that the only proper way to discuss this subject w first to remove it —a somewhat paradoxical statement, but perfectly clear to all wiio affect collars and are aware of their tendency to irritate one if one is at all In at sd, aa may naturally be expected in debate. Thus the collar, if retained, would become one of the strongest arguments against it self. Therefore, we will remove our collar and plunge at once into a discussion of the rea sons for its existence, its good points and it* shortcomings, and its ultimate fate, and endeavor, if possible, to decide whether the world would be any happier or brighter for the abolition of collais, or whether collars per se have added to the gayety of nations. The exact time when Collars were first worn cannot he set down with any degree of certainty, hut it is reasonable to assume that they came into being lor utilitarian rather than for ornamental purposes. It is well known that the collars of our medie val ancestors were substantial enough to protect the throat from the swords and pikes of belligerent acquaintances, and it is to he conjectured that the immediate forbears of the modern collar had an equally useful if not so strenuous an origin. Asa matter of fact, then, it would appear at first glance that the collar of to day is but a degenerate descendant of such weighty progenitors; but a survey of ttie uses to which collars are now put should convince one that the plain linen hand lias grounds for existence equally well based with those of its great-great great very great-grandparents. In the first place, collars serve overcome the shortcomings of nature. A six-inch neck with a protruding Adam’s apple could never hope to get on in the world unassisted by a collar. Such a neck would be simply im possible. Similarly a one inch neck with a four-ply chin. Some of our greatest finan ciers and most astute statesmen would lie wallowing in sloughs of despond to day were it not for the übiquitous collar. Hence the variety of collars, and hence the necessity for keeping one’s neck well groomed. The farmers' boys who achieve national fame doubtless owe much to the collar they donned when they entered upon an urban career. The rich men’s sons who waste their talents and meander through life mon uments to failure may justly attribute many of their errors to an ill advised selection of collum. Everything has a place and every neck has a collar, but not any collar. Again, collars are hygienic in the extreme. This may not appear true on I lie surface, but may safely be stated in view of the weird discoveries that the medical gentle men are now making. We live in a world of germs. The food we cal, the water we drink, the very air we breathe are all laden with insidious, wicked and death-dealing or ganisms of less than atomic corporeality but more than monstrous activity. Everything with which we come into contact is germ laden, the wise men of the mortar tell in.. Through the very pores of our skin death blows are delivered. Now, the neck is one of the weakest parts of the human body, and at the same time is one of the most impor tant parts. The collar guards the neck against the sulanic germ. Eureka! anew reason for wearing collars is discovered. Still further, collars form an Index to the progress of a nation. The peoples who wear collar* are incomparably further ad vanced than the people* who leave their necks as nature provided them. Even the savages who string beads into a species of collar are on a higher intellectual plane than their fellow savage* who do not run to beads. In our own coun try a striking example of the importance of collars from a national standpoint is af forded by the Chinese exclusion act. Do you think we would ever have excluded the Chi nese if they wore collars? Hut spread the news not abr tad. flhould the benighted laundrymen ot Chinatown ever learn that all their fellow countrymen need do in order to get an entrance into this delectable king dom is to don collars, the well laid plans of congress would be agley forever. < (nr collar makers would dunce a merry fling, but the rest of the nation would pay the piper. In truth, collar* have their shortcomings, too. We have already hinted at one fault— the tendency to irritate one when one is healed and we have obviated tbi* fault, for the present, by removing our collar. Hut there are times when the collar cannot with propriety be removed. Such occasions are multiplying daily with the ever increasing variety of parlor games being placed on the market by enterprising dealers. A ping-pong enthusiast, for example, must feel worried when he is called upon to display his skill at a social gathering How he would like to rip that band of linen from his neck, but he durst not violate the conventionalities. And his opponent, a chubby faced college youth with comfortable turndown collar, or a sporting dominie with queer, stubby, little turn up, grins at him comfortably, while he, perspiring in hi* ridiculous but fashionable ehokei, makes ludicrous and feeble at tempts to drive, cut or kill the tiny celluloid sphere. Moreover, if it were not for collars we would not be cursed with collar buttons, those imps of mischief who delight to frolic in most unexpected quarter* while their ng grieved owner is hunting for them on ach ing knee. Hut there everyone will be sal istied with a mere hint at that line of argil inriil. The subject is distasteful to a well i egulnted in md, and the morbid should never be encouraged. Taking all things into consideration, the problem present'd by the collar i* one that every man should solve lor himself It sun ply means that the eollarlflst man is likely to have much physical comfort but possibly nothing of worldly success, while the collar wearing individual will probably have riches, honor and advancement thrust upon him but certainly none of the physical en joyments attendant upon the existence led by the other fellow.

Think Thwt They Have at Uh Smlvrd the Problea*. The Lehandy brothers, of Paris, are convinced that they have more nearly solved the problem of navigat ing the air than anybody else thus far. The airship, just built for them by Julliott, a distinguished engineer, on their family estate at Moisson, which has been turned into an aero park, will be sailed to Paris am", back to Moisson, a distance of 215 miles, as soon as its details are perfected, or, at least, tbe trip will be at tempted. At the first trial recently, the bal loon held in crptivity at a height of about 150 feet was steered success fully against tbe wind. Again and again it went around tbe park, re“- sponding admirably to every move ment of the helm for half an hour, the evolutions being conducted with extraordinary facility. The airship is 130 feet long, and 36 feet in diameter. Die gas envelope, which weighs 000 pounds, is of India rubber, protected by cotton.

In recent years the rich New Yorker, with his “pampered taste that knows #o abstinence,” has not had to deny himself during the winter of fruits and vegetables he is so fond, of “in sea son.” That is, in nature’s season; for man’s ingenuity has changed tlie sea ions, so far as the markets are con cerned, says the New York Times. Winter gardening in America has grown to large proportions, especially in the neighborhood of New York, where tbe winter demand for summer luxuries is very heavy. On Long isl and hundreds of acres of land are now under cultivation beneath glass roofs, and there are other large farms iu New Jersey similarly protected from the cold. Hothouse fruits and vegetables mul tiply in. quality and quantity each year. Big shipments in protected, curs are sent into the city each day. in the sotith, where the climate is more favor able to the cultivation of garden crops, and where less artificial protection is needed, large quantities of strawber ries and oilier fruits are raised aud shipped to cities iu the north. Hothouse products, being out of season luxuries, command high prices; but the competition of many growers and the decrease in the neces sary expense have served to lower them so as not to be prohibitive. The hothouse gardener has learned to di versify his industries, and also to fol low the profitable practice of rotating his crops. By the use of fertilizers he also is able to make bis gardens produce three or four crops each year, the variations in temperature being regu lated, so as to give each of them tbe degree of heat and moisture they would get from the time of planting in the spring until maturing, early in the summer, although this “season” may extend from the flrst of Novem ber to the end of February, when his products will lie rare luxuries for tlie table,, and bring correspondingly large prices. One of tbe most important auxiliary considerations in winter gardening is transportation, the same as in the summer when protection against the withering heat is necessary. But this lias been satisfactorily arranged, and little difficulty is experienced in get ting the valuable vegetables and fruits from the hothouses to the markets in distant cities. The increased cost of coal, owing to the strike, hothouse gardeners say, will necessitate raising the prices of gar den products raised during the winter. Large quantities of fuel are used, and the increased expense of maintaining the hothouses, they say, will be se verely felt. Florists, too, who must keep up their hothouses during fhe winter months, says tha.t higher prices for flowers will be inevitable. TYRANT LAWS FOR FINNS. IlrutMl Treatment Meted (tut to That Liberty-Loving; People by Russia, Since Russia has taken into its own hands tlie government of Finland the oppression of the people lias been of tlie most galling and cruel character. That cjuntry is a small and poor one, but its inhabitants have always loved liberty, aud though powerless to openly resist the brutal authority that scourges them they still assert their rationality aud their hatred of Muscovite rule in every manner possible. They were promised they would be governed by their own laws, but what tyrant ever kept his word? Recently a ukase was issued by Gov. Gen. Bobrikoff directing postmasters to withhold from the mails such mat ter as Hie constituted authorities may deem seditious, in the laws of Finland no such power exists, hut it is well known that Gov. Bobrikoff will take tlie laws in his own bauds mid vest ids gendarmes with author ity to interfere with the mails us much u they like. Since the sup pression of a large number of news papers and the banishment of scores of journalists the tyrant government has been greatly annoyed by a se cret publication known as tlie Free Word which, despite the most strenu ous effort of the governor aud his se cret police, continues to lie circulated most freely. Where tlie papers come from he is unable to ascertain, but they come regularly and iu great numbers. It is predicted that even if the whole mail service is abolished tlie the Free Work will still continue to speak to tlie people of Finland iu some way. One of the recent orders of this Bobrikoff was to interdict the use of wireless telegraphy in Finland. Such an order would seem laughable in this advanced twentieth century did it not disclose the extremity of the gross tyranny which Btfhrikoff exercises at all opportunities. .lust how he would prevent tlie use of fhe English-Sweilish Armorl system, which is so simple that even ordinary flagstaff* can lie utilized for the pur pose, is not easy to solve, unless lie should order all flagstaff* to he re moved.
